Lake 22 (Twenty-two) Trail
by Katerina Fort

Went on this trail for the first time April 18 - it was beautiful! The ground around the lake still had snow patches which added to the wonderful experience we already had. The trail isn't hard at all with mild elevation. Loved it & would go there again if there wasn't so many trails to explore! :)

Mount Pilchuck Trail

04/17/15 - Friday - I'm not sure why there are two entries for this trail with different stats (See Mount Pilchuck Lookout Trail). There's only one trail up there that I can see. Here's my review posted on the other trail page: Light crowd today despite the warm temp and blue skies. The first mile is slushy, muddy, and very wet. People were hiking in tennis shoes, but they were soaked, frozen and miserable. Bring waterproof boots, micro-spikes and trekking poles and you'll be much happier. Once the slow starts, you are in it the whole way up, so allow more time to get up and down. It took us around 5.5hrs and we stayed at the top for at least 45 mins. The views are insane. Well worth the trip. I posted several photos that show the trail conditions.

Heather Lake Trail

Wet, muddy and somewhat of a challenge where the trail has been beaten up over the winter. The lake is definitely a sight for sore eyes and is quite stunning; a very welcome sight after negotiating some rough and slippery sections to get there. A trail circles the lake so you can enjoy the view from all around. I will look forward to going again when the weather warms up and the ground is snow-free and less saturated.

Was longer then we expected. I should have done more research before taking the hike. Had beautiful view but was a challenge! Very wet. We will never do this hike again unless it's summer time. But it was really beautiful with the snow at the top. I think I was just not quite in shape for this hike yet. But I did finish just take it slow.

The payoff for this hike is great on a HOT day-Heather Lake is icy cold but my husband and I and the dog took a refreshing dip at the end of the trail. Beautiful scenery.

First hiking trip of 2014 and probably a bit too difficult for the first time out but worth it! Absolutely beautiful and the lookout was amazing. Will definitely do this hike again.
